MidSouthCon and ICFA

Last week was a pleasantly warm one for many of the Tachyon folks. Tachyon was very well-represented at MidSouthCon last weekend. Andrew Fox and Marty Halpern had a book launch for The Good Humor Man. Matt Staggs showed off his publicity expertise, blogged up a storm, and took a bunch of cool photos too. Jeff VanderMeer gave a sneak peek at his forthcoming Tachyon title, Booklife, his manifesto of everything a writer needs to know in the 21st Century. Everything. More on that soon.
Jacob was at ICFA, the annual scholarly conference devoted to all aspects of the fantastic (broadly defined) as it appears in literature, film, and the other arts. He was hanging out with James Patrick Kelly (and his busy camera), John Kessel, Bernie Goodman, and the rest of the sf/f geek elite. I mean think about it, what's more geeky than geeks who study geeks? Yes, it's a gathering of geeks who study geeks. Geektastic!
